Sorry that we’ve been off the air for so long. Paul and I returned safely from Sierra Leone where we collected nearly a TB of footage of Esther and her school for Esther’s Echo (www.esthersecho.org) and I have also just finished a move out West to one of Canada’s prime sci-fi film locations, Vancouver!
Anyhow, we will be catching back up on Chasing Atlantis very soon. In the meantime, happy Star Trek Day. Star Trek first went to air on this day in 1966. To honor that show which inspired me to do crazy things like drive across the continent to make a documentary film about the last space shuttle, here is an article by one of Canada’s greats, science fiction author Robert J. Sawyer, on the impact that Star Trek has had through the decades. Enjoy
